Abstract

The subtle, intimate ways in which we all ‘make do’ with objects (as makers and as users) amount to and account for the objects’multiple histories and meanings.Our experience of using objects is situated in an elusive, subliminal, fluid and alterable territory that evades precise definition or classification.To some extent, the subjective relationships between people and things lies beyond the reach ofthe makers: how then do objects enter people’s waysof use and how and when (or to what end) are they used?
